It was emancipated in 1988.   Despite it being situated in a dynamic area with various progressive cities around it  (such as, Carlos Barbosa, Bom Princípio, São Pedro da Serra, and Salvador do Sul), it has grown very little since its political emancipation (see comments in the Discussion Forum of the site).
